While traditional, instructional learning has a place in school, working out an answer or solving a problem by yourself is not only more rewarding but also helps to solidify the learning process.

UNIVERSITIES and businesses are placing increasing emphasis on the ability of graduates to have a better range of skills.

With technology readily available to all, in today’s business world it is often not enough to have studied a subject at school or university; competing students are expected to be able to interpret and continually develop a breadth of knowledge themselves.

Self-learning is an important skill for children as they journey through education and beyond to adulthood, building independence and ability to progress without reliance on a teacher.

While traditional, instructional learning has a place in school, working out an answer or solving a problem by yourself is not only more rewarding but it also helps to solidify the learning process — it becomes your superpower.

Encouraging children to assess their own work will enable them to gain a better understanding of what they are best at and what they need to work harder on.

If children practise editing and reviewing their work on a regular basis, they will soon become familiar with the process of self-assessment.

As children start to take ownership of their learning and experience success, they also develop invaluable confidence and self-motivation.

This can increase their enjoyment across a wide range of subjects at school while preparing them for personal and professional success later in life.

The Kumon Maths and English programmes provide a way to equip your child with the skills that they need to build a bright future, allowing them to fill in any missing gaps in their study foundations as well as the opportunity to work ahead of their school grade level.

The self-learning method offers so much more than traditional tuition: it nurtures your child’s independence, developing superpower self-learning skills to give them the tools to help them excel in the future.

Kumon offers free trial classes. To participate, register your children in either the Kumon Mathematics or English Programme before March 16.
